Pelosi Statement on House Vote to Extend Family and Medical Leave for Military Families
Date:9/26/2007

WASHINGTON, Sept. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement on the vote yesterday by the House passing the Extended Family and Medical Leave for Military Families:

"No group of Americans has stood stronger and braver for our nation than those who have served in the Armed Forces. How we repay the service of our veterans speaks volumes about our national character.

"The 110th Congress is keeping faith with our veterans not only in words, but action. Earlier this year, we passed the largest veterans' health care funding increase in the 77-year history of the Department of Veterans Affairs. Yesterday, we took another critical step in honoring both the service and the sacrifice of our troops and their families.

"The House approved an expansion of the Family and Medical Leave Act to include the family members of wounded veterans. Under this expansion, family members would be able to take up to six months of unpaid leave from their jobs to care for injured veterans, no longer having to choose between keeping their job and caring for a loved one.

"On the battlefield, the military pledges to leave no soldier behind. As a nation, let it be our pledge that when they return home, we leave no veteran behind."
